Saturday, July 20: Whoever publicly acknowledges me

We return to our occasional reading from beginning to end through the Gospel of Luke, which emphasizes the way God acts among people and across history through Christ.

Read Luke 12:8-10

"I tell you, whoever publicly acknowledges me before others, the Son of Man will also acknowledge before the angels of God. But whoever disowns me before others will be disowned before the angels of God. And everyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven."

Reflect

We all have moments of weakness where we slip up and perhaps speak a word against the Son of Man. Here we're told that we can be forgiven in those moments of weakness. As sinners, this is such a relief to hear that there is a way to be forgiven for those times we fall into sin.

Respond

Those who speak the truth about God before others will be rewarded. Look for chances today to tell others about the greatness of God in your life.
